K&L Notes

Produced from palomino grapes grown on a single 53 hectare vineyard in Marcharnudo alto, the best growing area in Jerez, Tio Diego might be our most elegant amontillado in stock. An average of 14 years old, this amontillado is still a bit more on the fino side of the spectrum, given its long ageing under flor as part of the Fino Inocente solera. It shows a similar purity and focus, with more richness and some slightly more nutty suggestions from the oxidative ageing. It is really a lovely aperitif, and one of the classiest amontillados I can think of for this purpose.

    A classic and quintessential example of Amontillado sherry from the folks at Valdepsino. Tio Diego has quite an expansive nose, with aromas of bruised yellow apple, green fig, and preserved lemon. Equally as compelling is the bouquet of black walnut, bitter almond, burnt sugar, and oolong tea. On the palate, notes of dried orchard fruit, dried apricot, brazil nut, and toffee. There are both rich and saline notes that make it a perfect accompaniment to various food options. Would be perfect with whole grilled prawns, brick-cooked chicken, or even a Portuguese seafood stew
